• MLSs must consistently adapt to changing consumer expectations, technologies and other shifting factors.

Publisher Brad Inman interviews MRIS (Metropolitan Regional Information Systems) CEO David Charron, who discusses the proposed MRIS merger with TREND, the reasons why he thinks “coming soon” listings are good for consumers and his views on listing syndication.

David Charron has been recognized by Inman nine consecutive times as one of the “Most Influential People in Real Estate” and has also been named as one of the “Top Ten Newsmakers” by the Swanepoel Trends Report. When David joined MRIS in January 2001, he brought a wealth of leadership and strategic industry experience, combining an extensive background in real estate, information systems and Internet business solutions. He is frequently called on to be a keynote speaker at industry events and contributes a column in the Washington Post and other publications about the Mid-Atlantic region’s housing market and trends.
